Shakti by DarrkestDrow Shakti by DarrkestDrow
I told ~Shakti37 a looooong time ago that I would draw a picture of her character. It took me ages to finally get around to doing it, but here it is. I know this isnít typical Drow clothing but Shakti isnít your typical Drow, so I figured I could get by with it.

I donít know if this is really a very good depiction of her or not but I hope you like it, ~Shakti37.

Nice work! I looove that bodice - how do you get that great shiny effect? It looks like satin :nod: I also really love the pose, and I'm really jealous of how you've drawn her feet! They're PERFECT! In fact, her entire anatomy is really, really good - her skin looks so silky. :clap: *sighs* I want to be able to draw poses like that! NO FAIR!! :lick:

YOU’RE asking ME how I get the shiny effect? :jawdrop: You’ve got to be kidding me woman, you do shines WAY better than I ever could. *smacks you* Besides, I just use the airbrush…and white… Real complicated eh? ^^;

And yeah I actually had fun with the feet! Something didn’t seem quite right with them and I asked Assey about it, and he seemed to think that the pose wasn’t even possible (and that you wouldn’t see that back foot if she was sitting on it). I had to actually mimic the pose to show him that it was possible, and that her foot would still be visible. But I also found out where the tweaking needed to be done, hehe. So yeah, when in doubt STRIKE A POSE and it might actually help. I felt like a dumbass but still…it had the desired effect. :XD:

The shine you've managed on that corset is something else, m'dear - it looks soo much like real satin, it's ridiculous! I just wondered if you'd adjusted the opacity or something ;) .

:laughing: Heh heh, yeah, I try to get Grant to pose, but he runs away... and you can SO sit like that, Assey! Just 'cos men like to sit legs akimbo all the time... it's a lovely, demure pose to catch those lowly males off guard!

She is very sweet! You really do poses very well, and the clothes are awesome. I think she looks rather sexy, and maybe a little evil..

Isn't it kind of interesting that people always play their drow as "not typical"? I for one DO have somewhat of a typical drow, if you can call a rare male cleric typical lol His name's Raun and I gave you his description a long time ago too lol (OK, so maybe a few months ago, that's not LONG). Still in one of the old comments I think ... o.o

I have a lot of normal characters actually. Unfortunately, to most people normal = boring, so they never really went over as well with people as the "nontypical" characters did.

And I still have that description of Raun Tir'Vouge...and an extremely brief description of Zinyth. It's all filed away with my massive list of "things I need to do if I ever get the time." ^^;

Hi, I really do love how it turned out DD. Yeah, she isn't Cunningham's Shakti, but my D&D charrie called Shakti Rilynt'tar. She's not particularly evil, but she is chaotic. She's a rebel.....in drow society, that would mean that she wouldn't be evil. Thanks a million, DD.

The purpleness...yeah... ^^; It's just about the only color other than black that I'll use on Drow. ^^;

...I should probably remedy that sometime... :paranoid:

Thanks! This type of clothing normally isn't my "thing" but I was experimenting with it and trying to deviate from my normal buckles, straps, and chains style, hehe. It's nice to hear that people like it.

Thanks for all the compliments Sabes! :)

Errr... Sorry but I can't tell if you're suggesting that I draw a male in something similar to this, or if your just mistaking her for a male. :confused: ^^; It is a female though...

But if you're just suggesting similar clothing for a male, then yeah I've been thinking about something like that for a while now (so far as the skirt goes). I have a friend who's obsessed with males wearing kilts and long skirted pieces like this. I thought about drawing something like that, but my males have been looking so femmy lately that I am afraid that people wouldn't be able to tell if it's a male or female. :frustrated: It's still a possibility though... :plotting:

Sudgesting a male similar. Obviously she is female. But I love the billowy and cut of her shirt. It would be gorgiouse on a male. Just cut down teh front of the shirt to make the chest very visible, and the pants a little .... extra tight... and you cant help but asume its a male.

Hehe...yeah about as "fun" as I think I'm willing to go with Drow... The top looks more like something a surface Elf would wear...the skirted piece can stay though, hehe. Have you noticed that besides black, about the only color I tend to use with Drow is PURPLE...I think I have a problem... I need to expand my use of colors but I'm afraid to. :fear:

Hehe, well I can't actually enter the contest (since I won the last one) but I was thinking about doing something "in the spirit of" the contest. Dunno if I'll get around to it or not though, I have so much other crap I need to work on too. I need a clone of myself to help me out...or maybe just more free time, hehe. ^^;
